Inclusive classrooms, expansion of the learning management system Canvas, increased Google cloud platform usage and other online-based solutions to learning will be among the Weatherford Independent School District’s educational priorities for the 2016—17 school year, the district’s board of trustees were told Monday. Interconnected goals and approaches to education are important, said Dr. Lance Campbell, the school district’s secondary education director. Personalized learning for summer school students is a priority as well, Campbell said. “We typically take kids from summer school and hire teachers … we can personalize our learning experiences for those kids. That’s where the whole idea came from. Teachers were assigned and worked with them individually.” Establishing relationships and a love of learning is something of importance, Campbell said.
